Were Randy Moss and Libby Offutt Ever Married?
The retired football player, Randy Moss and his high school sweetheart were never married but Libby's dazzling ring on her wedding ring finger proves they were engaged in the 1990s.
Moss and Offutt quit the relationship before they tied a knot and there was no exact reason behind the separation. However, Libby's 2019 post related to him was a mixture of ridiculous and father's love for his children.
While focusing one of the comments on her Instagram, Offutt said Randy left her and their kids while she was eight months pregnant with the 5th child, Sylee. The baby mama doubts Randy may have cheated on her.
Assuming the statement given by Libby, Lydia was intimately linked to Moss while he was still in the relationship with Offutt despite knowing he's a father to five kids. Lydia is a cause for tearing their family completely apart.

Randy Moss and Libby Offutt were together since high school. Back then this interracial couple faced a lot of bullies. Together since high school, the pair faced frequent racial taunts and threats in Rand, West Virginia, which even became worse after their first child was born during their senior year. Things went upside down for Moss when the provoked led him to get in a school fight which then ultimately cost him Notre Dame scholarship.
With his career taking such a toll even before it started, Randy then decided to struggle what's left of it with his then high school love. And with 14 seasons of NFL, Libby and four children, Moss looked like he was having it all despite that early downfall.
But it wasn't quite over for Randy, not at least off the field. Randy would've never thought that he was going to have such a chunk of ups and downs in his first-ever love, Libby.
Things plummeted at such a rock bottom for Moss and Libby that at the final moments before their separation, the footballer even went on to accuse his former girlfriend of blowing his $4 million worth of money on drugs and abandoning their kids. However, on the other hand, Libby kept on denying Moss's accusations.

She instead explained to have been drug-free for several years and further added that her ex-boyfriend was trying to distance the children away from her. While forwarding the results of her drug tests which showed no signs of any substance abuse, Libby told TMZ that Randy was against letting her meet the children at Christmas.
"I drove 4 hours on the 26th to take my kids their Christmas presents and his wife wouldn’t let me see the kids or even leave their presents for them. He was mad and acted very immature, saying false things that the children are gonna read eventually, subjecting them to more unnecessary emotional stress. And why bash the woman that brought 4 of your children into this world?!"
After this, Libby somewhat became a thin air among the media. Likewise, whether Moss is finally allowing her to visit the children or not, still remains a story yet to unravel.
But speaking of bad past, Randy also doesn't possess a clean slate as around his time with Libby he became quite infamous for domestically abusing Rachelle Washington(one of Randy's girlfriend).

After surviving and escaping the difficult situation with Libby, more drama followed Moss in January 2008 (the week before the Super Bowl), when he got a restraining order filed against him by Rachelle Washington.
Randy allegedly physically assaulted her, which later he only described as an “accident.” The retired did confess a “friendship” with Rachelle during the previous 11 years but explained that he was never having an affair with her. In fact, according to the footballer, Washington was only after him rather with the interest for his money.
Moreover, Moss's lawyer, in an e-mail to the Boston Globe, in turn, accused Washington's attorney giving blatant threats and attempts to extort money from Moss.
